Personally I ran into problems getting Ruby's LDAP package to compile
in my Win32 environment. I tried using MSVC, Borland, etc. to no avail.
So I abandoned trying at the point of getting myself tangled up in all
of the extconf/mkmf stuff that was over my head.

Perhaps there are others who have succeeded in this area. If so I'd
love to hear from them :-)
